I have this tv, Samsung TX2675WH and i recently got the correct adapters to run a powermac into its DVI port, but the resolution looks wrong at everything ive tried. I know about Switch ResX (which i cant figure out), and Display ConfigX. But i still cant figure out what resolution to set it at. Any ideas?

try hooking up to the television using the vga port. you'll need a dvi-->vga adapter, but it should do the trick.

the vga port on the powermac has some sort of bad connection, and baindg is visible all over the screen.

the dvi connection is fine.

i just was looking for some suggestions on what resolution to use, as 1280x768 seems to but just a little too far pass the edges on the right, but pretty far off on the left.

The link in your OP clearly states that the maximum horizontal resolution of your new TV is 800 horizontal lines of resolution. 1280 simply won't work. Try 800 x 450 that is possible.
